    Revolution is the better show.

    Castle hit 100 episodes and its ratings are juiced right now. It will be interesting to see if viewer interest holds.

    The anniversary episode was a while ago; ratings were already trending up this season even before then. Definitely puts the Moonlighting Curse to bed, but you’re right that we’ll have to see if they can sustain interest.

    Castle has held strong through all 5 seasons so I have no doubt that viewers will continue to watch. It’s a great show and last nights episode was hilarious! It just keeps getting better and better!

    ‘CASTLE’ has the entertainment I long for and this 5th season has been extraordinary with a delightful mixture of comedy, drama and the all important chemistry between it’s lead characters, Castle and Beckett. Can’t wait to see what happens in next week’s ‘Still’ episode. Should be a winner!!
